Happy gardening, y'all!

Native salvia & jasmine
with a few zinnias thrown in there.

Probably the last of our sunflowers.

Thanks, Jean for hosting Bloomin' Tuesday!


  1. It's always neat to see what blooms in other people's gardens. I'm not at all familiar with Rattlebox--I had to google that one!
    And how neat to be able to grow lemons!

  2. I love zinnias too! They last forever and are always great in a vase. My red ones are still going strong!

  3. I love that Rattlebox & Butterfly Vine, such unusual & pretty blooms! :)

  4. Your photos are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  5. As always daisy, beautiful! I bet you have the nicest garden in your whole neighborhood. Just think what your garden will look like when you get out of the HOA. I can't wait.

  6. Hi there I am visiting your site as another Bloomin Tuesday participant. Your garden look s lovely.

  7. Your garden is still amazing! I never heard of rattlebox. Love that you have so many native plants. Love the butterfly vine. Great post! Jean

  8. Sue-I LOVE peeking into other people's gardens!

    Tracy-Hope you get many more weeks of zinnia blooms!

    Racquel-I like the unusual stuff too!

    Dawn-Thanks for stopping by!

    Jane-You are too kind. Yeah, I'll be going hog wild once we're out of this neighborhood!

    LindyLouMac-Thank you for visiting!

    Jean-Yes, I've learned that natives are the way to go!

  9. Wow! What a colorful array of flowers! Everything is lovely. (Yes, that does look like ageratum...it took me forever to get it from popping up everywhere in my flower beds!) I enjoyed my visit here.

  10. never met a zinnia I didn't like. Mexican Sunflowers do fine in FL. I am in North Florida. I can send you some seeds if you like. I am posting this from my blogger account, I cannot comment on some blogs from wordpress. my eamil rusdar at hotmail dot com

  11. Deb-Thanks for identifying that for me! And thanks for visiting!

    Darla-LOL, I know what you mean about the zinnias. I would LOVE some seeds! Let me know if you would like anything you see from my garden. Thank you!

  12. Trying to comment from wordpress. I want to know what the native butterfly vine is. Email me your address please.

  13. Darla-As soon as it's light out, I'll go check the tag on the native vine. I'll see if I can get some seeds for you. I know I bought it at the extension center last year around this time.

  14. Your garden is so beautiful. You have so many things still blooming. Just lovely. Thanks for sharing. Ginger

  15. Ginger-I'm so glad you could visit.

  16. You have lots of beautiful blooms! I don't think I've seen rattlebox or native butterfly vine. I love them both, and their names!

  17. Sue-Thanks! I have rattlebox seeds, if you'd like some.

  18. I love zinnias as well! I love the pic of the pink one! I've never heard of rattlebox before, and I've only recently heard of Butterfly Vine. Does it attract butterflies for you? Your salvia is really pretty as well!

  19. Indie-Yes, it does attract butterflies. Thanks for the kind words.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
